24/7 Fitness Centers Are Ready When You Are

“‘Part of our overall fitness service for our members is 24-hour-a-day convenience,’ said Snap Fitness owner Brian Mulder, who owns and operates sites at 2056 Lake Michigan Drive NW in Grand Rapids and 150 Pine St. in Wayland. Mulder's 2,500-square-foot facilities offer free weights, weight machines and a cardio-exercise theater. The 24-hour format works ‘because we are focused on being a neighborhood fitness center where people don't have to drive miles for a workout,’ he said.Anytime Fitness centers have been around about a decade, International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association spokeswoman Rosemary Lavery said. ‘They started in major metro areas like Chicago, with large manufacturing sectors, white-collar industries and universities, where people had diverse schedules,’ she said. Besides convenience, round-the-clock fitness centers also reduce staffing needs and eliminate the guesswork for operating hours.”
